When is Saxophone Day? This holiday is always observed on November 6
Saxophone Day is today, a November 6 holiday. The Sax is a classical brass wind instrument. It is an essential instrument in jazz bands, symphonic bands, marching bands, and more. It’s only fitting that this great instrument has a day of recognition all to its own.
The Saxophone was invented around 1840. It was created by Adolphe Sax, a Belgian musical instrument maker. The sax is made of brass.
Adolphe Sax invented 8 types of saxophones: Sopranino, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone, Bass, Contrabass, and Subcontrabass. The first Saxophone ever created was the Bass Saxophone. The 9th type of Saxophone, the Soprillo Saxophone, was invented in 2004. It is the smallest Sax.
